The Orphans of War begin their plundering


Oaths, brotherhood, loyalty… Lies!

Endryd Haar, Blackshield

The Horus Heresy: Legions continues its fourth major content expansion, The Battle of Calth. The Orphans of War have arrived, fighting for your their own goals and pledging no alliance to either Horus nor the Emperor. Are you ready to lead your warband?

New Faction: Orphans of War
The Heresy’s brutality and far reach across the galaxy left many Space Marines stranded without a Primarch, a Legion or a cause to believe in, outside of the grand schemes of Horus or the Emperor. These Orphans of War became the galaxy’s boogeymen: some fought the Legions on their own terms; others ruled over petty kingdoms; others became nothing more than pirates.

New Event: ‘Monsters and Martyrs’
Isstvan III and V are but ash and Horus has set his plan in motion. In the wake of his Heresy, both Loyalist and Traitors begin to find something new… Space Marines with no Legion, renegades, exiles and abandoned warriors who have formed warbands across the galaxy to fight for their own goals.

Three collectable Warlords lead the sail the stars in their own desperate missions:

● Atesh Tarsa: A survivor of Isstvan V and an apothecary who found a new home aboard the Iron Hands vessel Sisypheum. Cut off from his Legion, he now saves the lives of his new brothers in and out of combat.
Endryd Haar: A former World Eater who never got the Butcher’s Nails. He massacred both Loyalists and Traitors on his way to Terra pursuing a personal quest to kill Horus himself.
● Ulrach Branthan: Captain of the Sisypheum, one of the few vessels that escaped Isstvan V. Branthan didn’t escape the Drop Site Massacre without being fatally wounded, and only being bound to an ancient artefact called The Iron Heart was keeping him alive afterwards.
